Only midfielders line up for throw-in.

The sign of four

At one stage, all players lined up for it, and from 1910-64, the six forwards and two midfielders contested it (see video of 1963 final here). By 1964, the rules were amended so that it is two v two for the throw-in and only midfielders lined up for the throw-in as we are used to today.
